Composite Bonding and Veneers


Veneers are thin coverings of porcelain or composite. Porcelain veneers are crafted by a dental technician to exactly match an impression of your teeth made by your dentist. Porcelain veneers usually need very little preparation and where suitable are thus a very conservative restoration.

Once bonded to the tooth, the veneer becomes strong and natural looking and can be long- lasting.

Composite bonding

Composite bonding is an excellent method for correcting broken, misshapen, stained, or otherwise unsightly teeth.

Composite tooth bonding is usually a one-visit procedure.

  • The tooth is prepared by lightly roughening the area to be repaired, which usually doesn’t require an anesthetic.
  • Then the surface of the tooth is etched with a gel, and a treatment of bonding primers and resins are applied to the tooth.
  • Then the composite is applied.

Dental bonding composites are materials made of acrylic resins with inorganic fillers, and containing photo initiators. They are made to a paste-like consistency so that they can be sculpted to the proper shape. They contain various pigments which are matched to your tooth colour, and they come in varying degrees of translucency, with careful attention paid to their polish-ability.

  • This bonding composite is applied to your tooth, sometimes in several layers in order to duplicate the depth of colour that occurs in a natural tooth. A high-intensity light is then used to harden it. With careful artistry, this bonding composite can be manipulated to mimic the colour details and translucency of your tooth, and polished to a beautiful shine.
